iPhone X (simulator) no portrait upside down (LC 8.1.7 / Xcode 9.0.1)

Post by drkosta » Sun Nov 05, 2017 10:01 pm

Hi there,

today I started to optimise my app for iPhone X display. For iPhone (and iPhone Simulator) I use in the preopenstack handler some code for allowed orientations on iPad and iPhone (and simulators).

When testing the app on ipad simulator and any iPhone simulator the allowed orientations are displayed right when turning the device except the iPhone X simulator. Nothing changes here when turning the device.
Is there any new name in "the machine"? Any ideas how to solve?

Thanks in advance

Kosta

Code: Select all

on preOpenStack
   
   if the machine is "ipad" then
      put "portrait,portrait upside down,landscape left,landscape right" into theallowed
      mobileSetAllowedOrientations theallowed 
   else if the machine is "ipad simulator" then
      put "portrait,portrait upside down,landscape left,landscape right" into theallowed
      mobileSetAllowedOrientations theallowed 
   else if the machine is "iphone" then
      put "portrait,portrait upside down" into theallowed
      mobileSetAllowedOrientations theallowed 
   else if the machine is "iphone simulator" then
      put "portrait,portrait upside down" into theallowed
      mobileSetAllowedOrientations theallowed 
   end if
   
end preOpenStack

Hi drkosta,

It looks like "Upside-down portrait mode is not supported on iPhone X.", seen in https://developer.apple.com/ios/human-i ... /iphone-x/

Best,
Panos

It seems that the iPhoneX portraitUpsideDown screen orientation does not work in the simulator. For all other devices it does work

Did you read Panos reply above?
If the device itself does not support this, why should its simulator do? 8)
